Only Twenty More Days Till Christmas!!

December 5, 2014

Good morning.  It's sunny and cold here this morning.  At 8 a.m. the temperature was 29F degrees, but it will get up to around 41 by early afternoon.  In the upcoming days, we have some rain and/or snow coming our way.  The weatherman says that whatever it is, there will be a lot of it so I'll have to keep an eye on the weather reports.

Yesterday Joe helped me take a few boxes to the Post Office.  Afterwards, we did our food shopping.  By the time we were finished, it was too late to go to the hardware store.  I'm hoping we can get there this afternoon so that I can pick up some bird food.  Also, I want to drop off a couple bags of dog and cat food for the animal shelters.

We may make another run to the Post Office later today if Joe isn't too tired after work.  If not, we can go Saturday or Monday.  The things that I had ordered on-line are starting to dribble in.  As soon as they are all here, I can close up my last few boxes.  Gosh, there's only twenty more days till Christmas! 

Last night, I worked on the shocking pink afghan for a while, and now I'm down to the last twenty six rows.  Woo Hoo!!  I'm getting anxious to pick out a new color to work with. 

Wednesday evening, I went on-line looking for a present for Pogo.  He doesn't play with his toys, so it's not easy coming up with something he can enjoy (other than steak).  Because he prefers to sleep on the sofa in a pile of fuzzy blankets, I decided to get him his very own sofa.   He can't jump up onto my sofa, but he will be able to jump up on his own sofa.  I hope he likes it.  We'll see.

Today I have a photos of a rather handsome pigeon, and a tiny sparrow peeking out from his safe spot inside a hedge.  No matter the size, I think all the birds are beautiful.

Speaking of birds, I had ordered a heated water bowl for our birds, and it came yesterday afternoon.  Joe says he will make a post to attach it to, and hopefully we can have it up and running soon.   When it's set up, I'll take a photo to share here.

Well, that's about all the news for today.  It's getting close to lunch time and I need to think up something tasty for my little guy.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

Got your mail about the box on it's way! So we are both in time. Silly Edna, why mailing another box just for my birthday? It gives you more expences. You could have put the things ofr it in the Christmasbox, when I promise i will not open till the actual day, I keep my promise LOL.
Yeah, hard to find something for Pogo, but I think he will be happy with his own sofa! wow, he should be grateful to you(but I know he is with such a good caretaker!)
Happy weekend, dear
